After being very satisfied with a Parker BHPB for the past three years, I was looking for a comparable brush with a slightly larger handle and a little more loft. Having tried a number of more expensive brushes from well-known brands, I came back to WCS for the Parker WHPB and now that I've used it for a couple of weeks (shaving daily) I can say it's exactly what I have been looking for. It's a slightly larger version of the BHPB with a little more backbone - perfect! I use the two for creams, Proraso red and Bigelow, and use a Simpson Commodore X2 for Proraso white croap in the tub (hopefully, WCS will be adding the new Proraso white in the tube) in regular rotation. Don't let the low price fool you - this is a great brush that feels and works as well as brushes costing 2 - 3 times more.
